Ms. Mizuno was recently elected to the House of Councillors, part of the upper house of the Japanese Diet. She is a member of the Constitutional Democratic Party, which is the largest opposition party in the Diet. Prior to her election, she was a long-time member of the Japanese space agency, JAXA, and a lecturer at the University of Tokyo. She has a strong background in international space cooperation and space law. Her remarks will cover current Japanese space policy and activities, and challenges for JAXA as Japan increases the range and scope of its space activities.
